The lady and the queen

When Alexander McQueen premiered these frightening wonders in Paris for Spring 2010, there was some skepticism, especially in light of the recession, about who exactly would wear such fabulously impractical shoes. Little did we know that the answer was pulsating through the speakers of his show; Lady Gaga, whose preference for no pants inspired some pretty frightening Halloween costumes this year, wore them (along with a slew of other McQueen items) in the video of her new single, “Bad Romance”. Well if anyone could pull off gigantic Armadillo shoes, it’s the woman who once wore a dress made of bubbles.
